Keara's East Lansing Michigan Senior Portraits

I can't believe this day finally came! In college, I was Keara's babysitter, and met her when she was two years old! Three years ago, she asked me to do her senior pictures, and it seemed so far away. I can't believe she is graduating this year!

We started the shoot on the beautiful campus of MSU in East Lansing at the horticulture gardens. It was SO pretty! From there, we traveled to Williamston so that Keara could have photos with her new horse, Joey. Joey was *almost* as beautiful as Keara :) . Keara opted to have hair and makeup done by a stylist at Kenneth Brandt Salon in Mason, MI. The stylist stayed throughout the shoot for a hair change and touchups...it was so nice to have her right there to assist!

Congratulations on graduating, Keara, and I can't wait to see what amazing things you accomplish in college!

Oksana + Corey's MSU Engagement Photos

The MSU campus in the fall is so gorgeous. Well, to be honest, it's really gorgeous at all times of year, but especially in the fall! Since Oksana is a Spartan alum, she agreed that campus would be the perfect spot for their engagement photos. We met in East Lansing on a cloudy day with sprinkles of rain in the forecast just a few days before their wedding with no option for a reschedule. Thankfully, the rain held off, and didn't start sprinkling until I was in my car after the shoot. The clouds gave us perfect filtered light (clouds are always better than sun for photos, which most people don't know!)  and resulted in some gorgeous engagement photos. Here are a few of my favorites:
